Monitoring and Evaluation Expert for Myanmar Parliament
WFD is implementing the Phase 2 programme (2019-2021) to strengthen parliamentary practice in the Union Parliament of Myanmar. In partnership with the UK House of Commons, British Council, Irrawaddy Policy Exchange and other implementing partners, working with members of parliament, parliamentary staff and CSOs through various activities.
One of the components of the programme includes strategic development of Hluttaw to improve the effectiveness of the Joint Coordinating Committee (JCC) of Hluttaw. The Hluttaw’s JCC represents a key mechanism for effective coordination with development partners on international assistance to the Hluttaw. The JCC has taken measures to strengthen its role and functions since its formation, including establishing a staffing structure with personnel from all three house administrations, creating a division of labour between three teams (responsible for meetings and courtesy calls; workshops, trainings and visits; and workplans and strategic plan), and recently instituting quarterly workplan discussions with development partners. The net effect of these measures has been to enhance the effectiveness of the JCC’s coordination function, advance delivery against Strategic Plan objectives, and its responsiveness to partners.
WFD is seeking an expert to build the capacity of the Hluttaw in strategic planning, monitoring, evaluation and reporting and develop the monitoring and reporting system within the Hluttaw (including relevant staff and processes), including on the job training for staff and the development of tools and templates for monitoring and reporting. The expert will also need to review monitoring and reporting and quality checks at various designated points beyond inception, including annual/bi-annual reports and the strategic/monitoring framework.
Bids can come from individuals but also teams of experts, NGOs, consultancy firms, universities, etc. The selected contractor shall demonstrate proven experience in the topics outlined. Knowledge and experience of Myanmar is desirable. The proposals should include personal profiles, detailing academic and professional qualifications; specific experience/expertise; proposed work plan and a detailed account of fees (inclusive of taxes) and any additional cost if there were any.
